Every traveller travels for different reasons — delicious food, holiday getaway, incredible natural beauty, vibrant cultures and many more. But have you ever thought of visiting bridges?
Bridges serve more than a purpose to connect people and places. They are architectural wonders of art and structures and some even span centuries of history. From Singapore to Germany, these are the six unique bridges you need to visit at least once in your lifetime.
1. Rakotzbrücke “Devil’s Bridge”, Germany
Nestled among the verdant foliage in Rhododendronpark Kromlau is this delicately arched bridge built in 1860. The shape of the bridge was specifically built to create a circle when it is reflected in the waters beneath it. Just like one of the many ancient medieval bridges in Europe, the Rakotzbrücke is known as a “Devil’s Bridge” due to the colloquialism that such bridges were so extraordinary that Satan must have built them. Although it is prohibited to cross the ageing relic to preserve it, visitors are still welcomed to view the bridge and snap some pictures of the magnificent build.
